(INDIANAPOLIS) - One person is dead and another was injured in a shooting at Don's Guns on the Indianapolis northwest side Monday afternoon.

Steve Jefferson, of WTHR reports, Brian Layner, 26, of Indianapolis, was killed after police say he began shooting at a clerk. The clerk was injured.

Indianapolis Metro Police officers were called to the scene at around 12:20 pm at the corner of Lafayette Road and 38th Street. When officers arrived, they confirmed that two people had been shot inside the store.

Metro officers arrived to find gun shop employee Ben Chance suffering from a gunshot wound in the chest area. Police say Chance returned fire, killing the customer who was later identified as Brian Layner.

Owner Don Davis showed police the shooting play by play from his security camera video. The customer had just fired three boxes of ammunition in the shooting range.

"My guy goes up to collect from him and he shoots my guy twice - bang, bang - and my guy immediately killed him," said Davis.

Davis says the shooting suspect parked a black Chevy Camaro out front. It's a rental car that Davis said he has seen parked there before.

Davis says his business is automatically high risk because its impossible to evaluate every customer.
